Spotlight on Student Worker: Kyle Kasman

Kyle Kasman is in the student-worker spotlight this week.  Hailing from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, Kyle began working in Media Resources/Edlab two years ago while pursuing his doctorate in Physical Therapy. Kyle has an outgoing personality, and he most enjoys connecting with other people and finding new movies and books about their interests. Kyle’s excellent organizational skills and attention to detail have helped to keep Media Resources running smoothly. His advice to other students is to take advantage of all the services the Library has to offer and to ask the librarians for help.

A member of the PT Club, Kyle is involved in Seniorcise, an exercise program for seniors, and he assists in coordinating a local wheelchair basketball tournament. His hobbies include playing guitar, photography, hiking, kayaking and camping. You might be surprised to learn that Kyle used to sing and play guitar in a band that was almost signed to a record label!

Kyle is currently completing his clinical internships. His favorite professor is Dr. Leininger and his favorite class is Orthopedics, so it’s fitting that one of Kyle’s career goals is to become a Physical Therapist who specializes in Orthopedics.

Thank you Kyle, for all you have done here! We wish you all the best in the future.

Spotlight on Student Worker Donovan Sarango

Donovan Sarango, an Exercise Science major from East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, has only been working in Media Resources for a few months, and our single regret is that he didn’t start sooner.  His friendliness and enthusiasm are appreciated by our patrons and staff.

Donovan has a variety of activities and hobbies. He’s a member of Ultimate Frisbee (aka Electric City Scranton Ultimate), which is a competitive club that participates in tournaments in and around Pennsylvania. He also plays Intramural Soccer on the Flying Tunas team and volunteers at the Jewish Community Center as a personal trainer. Creative writing and listening to “real” hip-hop are some of Donovan’s other hobbies.

His favorite professor is Dr. Michael Landram and his favorite class is “Essentials to Exercise Strength and Conditioning”. His favorite book is The Great Gatsby and his favorite movie is Deadpool. People may be surprised to learn that Donovan can talk about movies, hip-hop or comic books for hours!

The things Donovan most likes about the library are the friendly environment, the variety of available resources and the quiet atmosphere. His advice about the library to other students is to take advantage of all the resources, especially the films in Media Resources.

After graduation in May, Donovan would like to work as a strength and conditioning coach for aspiring athletes.

Thank you Donovan. We appreciate your good work and wish you the best in the future!

Student Spotlight on Nazia Nowshin

Nazia Nowshin of Moosic, Pennsylvania began working in Media Resources/EdLab in June of 2014. The Library would like to recognize her dedication and hard work as her graduation approaches.

Nazia is resourceful, friendly and has a positive attitude. Since she lives locally, she has been able to work year-round and has helped with numerous projects. She’s also witnessed the expansion of the streaming media databases. Nazia enjoys working in the library because it’s a peaceful place and a great environment for a work-study student. Her advice to other students is to use all the resources available. The library has countless books and DVDs as well as streaming media and print databases that can help students with their classes or research.

Nazia is a Biochemistry major whose favorite class is Microbiology taught by Dr. Sulzinski. Her favorite books and movies are the Harry Potter series and her hobbies include hiking and reading. Along with taking classes and working in Media, Nazia is a Microbiology Teaching Assistant, a member of the Health Professions Organization and a volunteer at the Edward R. Leahy Jr. Center Clinic for the Uninsured. A fun fact about Nazia is that she’s quadrilingual! She speaks Bengali, Hindi, Urdu and English. Her plans for the future include earning a Master’s Degree in Biomedical Sciences or Microbiology and attending medical school.

Thank you Nazia for your hard work and enthusiasm.  Your future is bright and we wish you all the best!
